New Statue in Germany Illustrates Just How Much the Rest of the World Opposes the U.S. Police State

“The statue pays homage to three who said no to war, to the lies that lead to war and to the intrusion into private life that helps to perpetuate war,” said Dormino, the artworks creator.


Berlin, Germany –This past Friday life-size bronze statues of Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning were unveiled in Berlin’s Alexanderplatz Square in front of German politicians and activists.

In Germany and much of the world, the three are considered heroes in the fight for freedom of information and speech, for their respective leaking of classified U.S. documents.

“They have lost their freedom for the truth, so they remind us how important it is to know the truth,” said the artworks creator, Italian sculptor Davide Dormino, during the unveiling.

The artwork is not only an ode to the courage of these three whistleblowers, but also serves as a call to citizens to take a stand, as the three are standing on chairs with a fourth empty chair next to them.

The piece is titled, “Anything to Say?” with the empty chair actually being the focal point of the piece, according to Dormino.

“The fourth chair is open to anyone here in Berlin who wants to get up and say anything they want,” Dormino told Deutsche Welle.

A number of people took the opportunity to stand upon the chair and speak, some with a loudspeaker, in an effort to show that they are not afraid to take a stand and speak truth similarly to these three whistleblowers.

“People are saying many different things. From politics to babbling to silence, from people who desperately are wanting to help Julian, Bradley and Edward to people who have no idea who they are. This chair is, I guess, a place of free speech,” said Dormino.

Sadly, most of the U.S. mainstream media has accepted the official U.S. government line, and attempted to call the actions and motivations of these three into question.

According to Euronews:

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange faces extradition to Sweden to face investigation into accusations of rape and sexual assault, but fears he will be extradited to the US to face questions over his role in leaking secret US documents. He has taken asylum in Ecuador’s London Embassy.

US soldier Chelsea Manning (born Bradley Manning) was convicted in 2013 on charges relating to the Espionage Act for leaking US intelligence and military documents to Wikileaks. She is currently serving a 35-year prison sentence.

Edward Snowden is currently evading extradition to the US by taking asylum in Russia. He released classified information from the National Security Agency (NSA) to journalists revealing the scale of the US government’s global surveillance capabilities.

“The statue pays homage to three who said no to war, to the lies that lead to war and to the intrusion into private life that helps to perpetuate war,” Dormino said.

Dormino says he will take the exhibit worldwide, displaying the piece in some of the most prominent public spaces across the globe. Of course one place the display will likely be unwelcome is the U.S., as a bronze bust of Snowden was removed immediately after being displayed in a public park.

It’s clear that most of the world recognizes the courageousness of the deeds these three whistleblowers have undertaken at the cost of their own freedom.

When will these three be recognized as the heroes and freedom fighter they truly are in the U.S.?

Please share this story if you agree that we should honor those who have the true courage to do what is right even if it is self-sacrificing.

  • Ironic Germany used to build hitler statues as well

    • Not to mention concentration camps.

    • Countries don’t exist as some sort of monolithic entity that you describe. “Germany” didn’t build shit. People did. People who are now nearly all dead.

      Just like I’m not guilty of slave ownership, the people who reside in the arbitrary geographic region called “Germany” aren’t guilty for building hitler statues.

    • And Germany built Guantanamo……or? Na, forget about it…..

    • … and the Bush family used to give him money.

    • that was years ago.. There is a documentary out there called The Invisible Frame.. It profiles Tilda Swinton cycling throughout Germany.. and it was a sad documentary in the fact that the producers tried to show the good parts of Germany and how it has progressed without mentioning The Holocaust or Adolf Hitler.. I’m kind of glad Germany is back in the news showing good things
      -and no I am not german..

    • Jeff Boone Gregory Rush Does Germany terrorise half of the world with their “war on terror” at present time?

    • What war on terror? Most of the current problems stem from NATO and our socialist in chief jumping into the “arab spring” and making a thorough mess of the entire Levant and North African region. For reasons I’ll never understand we helped rebels in Libya kill Khaddafi (and left them with nearly 200 stinger missiles which we can’t find). Khaddafi was taking money from Italy to make sure no African refugees made it across the med to Europe. Now that he’s gone, and now that our current “president” has seen fit to ensure ISIS thrives and did virtually nothing to contain them, Europe is now faced with an onslaught of both legitimate refugees as well as opportunists looking for an easier life, all the while the ISIS parasites are killing and raping everything in site. At least Putin (and oh the irony is killing me) is doing something to clean up the mess, even if it means keeping a butcher like Assad in power. The war on terror is ancient history my friend, the real problem now is our own US president and people like him, and a mainstream media that covers his ass most of the time.

    • Religion is “the most dangerous religion!”

    • What a line of BS Rush! Pure bullshit! You’ve OD’d on “Right wing News.”

    • You have lost your mind. For reasons you don’t want to remember Republicans gave and sold weapons to Iraq(chemical) and Iran(missiles), trained and gave support to Bin Laden against the Russians creating Al Qaeda. Lets not forget the Bush family and their ties to Saudi”s and the shady side deals that were made from Prescott, GH and GW. GW Bush also created ISIS after completely screwing up in Iraq and destabilizing the middle east of his ego.. So how is Obama at fault for all this again?

    • Like the story says…the “government.” Since the people are the “government”, or so everyone believes, guess who’s responsible? Both parties are supported…by the people. The continued blaming of each party…or an individual, is denial of responsibility. Until the ignorance of the people, being exploited (and some are just too stupid), is removed from the equation, America will just continue stumbling forward till it falls.

    • John Bertrand OK, well if you want a walk down memory lane, lets not forget the mountains of evidence we found that West Germany was selling equipment and supplies to Iraq for it’s chem/bio programs. Also that when we invaded Iraq we found Roland (french made) missiles that were only 3 months old, despite france having signed onto the UN weapons trade ban. And let’s not forget Russia refusing to go along with the UN resolutions against Iraq, probably because they were owed nearly $40 billion and were afraid a new government would default on that debt. And if you think ISIS was made over 7 years ago under Bush, you need to put down that crack pipe.

    • No Hitler did not build ” Hitler ” statues , nor did the Nazi Movement , another Misconception by the uneducated US

    • Larry Henderson – Your comments are so juvenile, I’m not sure where to begin. Like a typical Marxist you simply label and marginalize those you disagree with instead of making a substantive argument. Not sure what you mean by “right wing news”, but if you mean France 24, Reuters, BBC, The Economist, etc., are “right wing” news, then I don’t know how to help you. Hell even the left-leaning Washington Post is a good source with regards to what’s going on in the Levant right now compared to CNN or MSNBC. Where do you get YOUR news? Huffpost? LOL

    • Oxygen Deficiency Syndrome….it’s real.

    • If we’re gonna hold today a Germany for past Germany’s actions then you need to turn the mirror on the US. How about slavery? Corruption , how about the time we rounded up Asians and threw them in camps… Hmm who does that remind us of.

    • USA also built concentration camps for their own citizens with Japan roots.

    • And your comments are biased, bigoted, and brainless Rush. I have looked over your FB page. Misinformed and lying garbage. Redneck horse shit with intellectual pretension.

    • Larry Henderson, I didn’t even bother to visit his page, he pretty much announced all of that right here.

    • That’s the way I feel too.

      I love my fellow Americans. Wow, what an incredible bunch of people.

      But I despise my goverment, at every level.

    • There are some good, stand up people. All though the minority, oathkeepers exist. They deserve our support.

    • Americans i my experience are helping people au contraire to the portuguese that rejoice when s crwed someone’s lfe; i had never been in USA but in thenet through years i had very good surprses in termsofrespect andgenerosity..surely i didnt found them at the deep America,,,
      but wth the UK that i love and knows i cant say i’v been heled or had or even now no no warmFeelings..though enjoy a lot the british humour,

    • So too do the American people hate the American Government.

    • I think that was made perfectly clear in the words “the world opposes the U.S. police state”. There was no mention of “the American people”.

    • Absolutely, time for American people to take their government back from the corporations.

    • why do I hate American corporations 100x more than any emotion I have for the government?

    • Truth! I live overseas and hear it daily!

    • Adam Rollins so why did they elect them?

    • David Donahue because you don’t realize they are one and the same… the government/nations are simply corporations too… it’s all an elaborate ponzi scheme with funny money and artificial scarcity. <3

    • This is why, at each moment of chance, the American people must separate themselves from the Government’s actions. Engage them, find common things, and drop the America is the Greatest…bullshit. They don’t dislike us for what we have. They dislike us for what our Government does to them.

  • I have no issue with what these people have done other than the fact that we do not know how many people have been killed because of their release of documents. What I have issues with is calling people heroes who run and hide, there are too many people that have stood up to the ‘man’ and went to prison for their cause. The other issue is why is Germany putting statues up celebrating our ‘heroes’, do they not have enough of their own. I have watched documentaries on both Snowden and Assange and even though I admire what they have done, in the end when the pressure go too great they ran and to me if you can’t stand behind what you have done, then you are not a hero.

    • so they must die and become martyrs for you to respect and believe their information?

    • “Standing up to the man”? Right or wrong, the “man” will lock you away. Can’t have an “example” that exposes corruption by those in power…others might follow and cause problems. A harsh example must be made in order to instill fear in the masses. It’s real easy to sit and judge…when you’re not affected, or at risk.

    • Yes even a soldier knows when to fight and when to retreat!!! The red coats lost because those fools would line up and walk right into cannon fire and musket balls and we just mowed em down 1776!!!

      Simon, learn some grammar. It’s “you’re”.

    • Jesse Porter’s blind, ignorant nationalism is what Nazi culture was based on, and it’s utterly un-American. The government has somehow convinced people like him that it’s patriotic to help them destroy freedom. To be a traitor to an oppressive government is to be a hero of freedom, and it’s just about the most American thing you can do. If doubt that, you’d be well served to read up on the group of traitors that included guys named Washington, Jefferson, Adams, and Franklin.
